Join Silver Spring Nursery School for our first Great Pumpkin 5K!

Celebrate the fall season by dressing up and getting outside! Put on your running shorts or maybe your favorite Halloween costume, lace up your sneakers, and hit the trail! This is a virtual event:  run, walk, or mosey in your neighborhood, down Sligo Creek Trail, or wherever your heart desires.  Your race route can take you anywhere that works for you and your family.


The official Race Weekend is October 29 - November 1st, with a virtual finish line party to be held October 31st at 4:30 PM. If you can't run during the official race weekend, don't worry - you won't turn into a pumpkin! Registration will remain open for you to participate through November 30th.


Race registration fee is $25 per runner, and includes:

  • Exclusive access to weekly pre-race newsletter - with workouts, stretches, training ideas, encouragement, and more!

  • Digital download race bib

  • Race T-Shirt for every registrant

Don't forget to recruit a sponsor or two! Grandparents, neighbors, friends and family can sponsor a runner through the PayPal button on this webpage, or they can even join in the fun by registering to run their own race wherever they are! 

To sign up, first fill out the google form below. Then, if you are paying via PayPal, use the "Add to Cart" button further down. Make sure to put your name in both the registration form and next to the "Add to Cart" button so we can match your registration to your payment.


Registration closes October 24th.


If you registered on or before the 10th, T-shirts will be passed out the week of October 26th at the school. If you register between the 11th and 24th, T-shirts should be in by November 9th and arrangements will be made as needed to pass them out.

* Please make sure to press the "Submit" button on the form. If you don't we won't know your T-shirt size! *
